and israeli security. and in january of 2009, president george w. bush went to jerusalem and made a statement that summarized our policy and made the point valid which other presidents had made, including president obama, is that the israelis have a very successful state. but they don't have security for their people. they're entitled to it. the palestinians don't have a state and they want one. the only way each can get what it wants, is if the other also gets what it wants. in other words, they should be mutually vested in each other's success, in those objectives. >> president obama sent you to the middle east in 2009 following a similar armed conflict between israel and hamas. here we are, three careers later, at the end of another conflict between israel and hamas. what if anything in that region has changed since your visit in 20091. >> well the possibility of a two-state solution is more difficult now than it was then. it was very difficult then. the israelis and the palestinian authority. and it's ironic because both israel and the palestinian authority are opposed to hamas. they have

from the expiration of the george w. bush tax cuts for the top 2%. now, i want to make this clear. i said this earlier as it's worth repeating because it's not said very often. every american taxpayer gets a tax reduction. the superwealthy to the very minimum taxpayer in this nation gets a reduction in what the president is proposing and that is to continue the current tax rate on those under $250,000, adjusted gross income. for those who have income over and above that, they get that tax reduction and above that they are going to pay an additional amount up to 3.9% in two different traunches. so everyone gets a tax break, but those superwealthy, the 2%, they're going to pay for and that will amount to a substantial amount of money over 10 years and frankly they've had 12 years of really low, low taxes, the lowest taxes really ever since the 1930's. the president has also proposed something that's very important. we talked about this last week. i want to talk about this again the next time we come here and that is, how do we grow jobs, how do we put people back to work? the president

and republicans push this off. george w. bush also during his eight years in office didn't bring it. i agree with you. >> here's why we'll see immigration reform in 2013. >> doubtful. >> the achieve act essentially is by the way, the achieve act doesn't provide a path for citizenship. it's the dream act without the dream. >> it's a dud. >> two outgoing senators. >> that's valid. >> the stem act is proposed by lamar smith, notoriously anti-immigrant. when he's sponsoring an immigration reform bill, something has changed in the republican party. when two outgoing senators are proposing their version of immigration reform, something changed in the republican party. >> i think, again, until we look at the -- it's almost three-pronged. until we look at the enforcement issues, those issues, then we can do -- >> but the thing is you don't have to deal -- you can create path to citizenship in pieces, in stages without dealing with them. instead of saying we can't do anything until we do it all. >> my sister-in-law, she's south african, she came here ten years ago, it took her seven years to gain sta

and regretting that as much as george w. bush saying he looked into vladimir putin's eyes and saw his soul. this is, after all -- please explain to us, if you will, while all the gushing goes forth from the white house and others, explain how we got to this point where the muslim promised after mubarak's fall that they would not seek power and then they grabbed ultimate power and then he consolidated power and then he crushed the judiciary on thanksgiving day, and now we're sitting here wondering whether in the words of rich lowery we're in a position where it's meet the new pharaoh, same as the old pharaoh. >> well, this comes up in our interview as well. there are two lines of thinking on this. so some would argue and morsi himself would argue that he was simply trying to protect the constitutional process from a judiciary that was pro mubarak, that was trying to actually quash this democratic process and thwart democracy and freedom in egypt. that's the pro morsi line of thinking. the other line of thinking is that the muslim brotherhood is more hard line than they would claim to be, th

trust anything democrats agreed to when we have had a history going back to george h. w. bush where he promised to raise taxes, and the democrats were going to lower -- cut spending $2 for every dollar that he raised? what happened, he had said, read my lips, no new taxes. would he agree to do this, the democrats piled on. why in the world should they trust anything the democrats promise as far as spending cuts are concerned. guest: let's go back to the earlier question, do they live up to the deficit-reduction law's the past. it is true they sometimes pass spending cuts and then reverse them. -- laws they have passed. it is true they sometimes pass spending cuts and then reverse them. it kind of works on both sides, but i suppose why should republicans trust democrats? democrats also did not know if they should trust republicans. that is why we're in a little bit of a gridlock here. host: we began our conversation with sam goldfarb of cq roll call by talking about a so- called tax extenders. a quick definition? guest: temporary tax breaks usually directed to the small type of business
